Grain Trailer Fitted With Its Own Unloading Conveyor
“Our trailer and conveyor combos are legal in all 50 states plus Canada,” says Dan Gary, Gem-L owner. “Units come with tandem or tri-axle Wilson trailers from 36 to 48 ft. in length.”
The grain, seed and fertilizer conveyors are lightweight and built to last, weighing in at 2,800 lbs. Discharge sections can be quickly folded and locked into travel position for farm-to-field movement.
Lower conveyor assemblies are held in place beneath the trailer with two bolts per hopper and easily slide in and out on built-in tracks. Their unique design allows the full removal of lower and upper systems in less than an hour by simply disconnecting a single cylinder pin and bolt. All hydraulic lines uncouple with quick disconnects.
The rear delivery chute features over 10 ft. of horizontal swing, making it easy to position receiving equipment. The spout offers 16-ft. of clearance allowing filling at a more ideal angle. Discharge rates run from 4,000 to 6,000 lbs. per minute.
Electrical switches control the entire unit adjusting the spout swing and height, fold and lock features and the starting and stopping of the conveyor belts, all from a single location at the rear of the trailer. A wireless remote control option is also available.
Other available options include fertilizer screens, split hoppers for additional compartments, self-contained hydraulic units, electric hopper doors, field lights and upper spout controls.
“We do all our manufacturing at our shop in Brandon, S.D.,” Gary says. “They’re available throughout North America. There’s a lot of variation on specs so it’s good to browse the website, check with our sales folks, and work with them to arrange what’s needed.”
Gary says tandem axle systems sell from $102,000 to $107,000 while tri-axles range between $132,000 and $140,000.
